Make a villa in Sophia-Antipolis your home away from home

Holiday rentals in Sophia-Antipolis are part of a collection offered by HomeAway in the Alpes-Maritimes Valleys in the south of France. Sophia-Antipolis apartments are located in a modern residential suburb of Cannes and Antibes, so the neighbourhood is quieter and more sedate than those closer to the coast. The community nature of this area is demonstrated by a central shopping area, with restaurants for Sophia-Antipolis accommodation visitors who prefer eating out, supermarkets for the self-catering fans, and a small play area for children. This region also has the double benefit of being both near the coast and the Alps, so there are a whole slew of activities to enjoy.

Sophia-Antipolis self caterings are sandwiched between two golf courses, so this settlement is great for golf nuts, and the country club has a large number of tennis courts. Accommodation in Sophia-Antipolis is also surrounded by a large forested national park which is great for hiking and biking, and inside, rentals come with all the comforts of home: satellite TV; dishwashers; washer/dryers; large kitchens. There are a host of additional amenities available to provide visitors with the best holiday experience, with everything from swimming pools to barbecue equipment on offer.

Things to do

Beaches: Sophia-Antipolis is about four miles from holiday homes in Antibes and five miles from Cannes, where HomeAway also offers luxury holiday homes if a busier location nearer the sea is preferred. These are easily accessible by bus, and the Antibes train station accesses the main Riviera train line, which stops right at most of the main beaches up and down the Cote d'Azur.

Food and drink: There are restaurants and cafés to be found in the central shopping area, and a few more in the surrounding villages. The urban sprawl closer to the coast raises the number of dining options significantly. The food tends to focus on the local hearty Provencal produce, famous for its blend of French and Mediterranean cuisines.

Outdoor pursuits: Sophia-Antipolis is sandwiched between two golf courses, so golfing enthusiasts are well taken care of; the local country club also has its own driving range and tennis courts. Hikers and bikers are surrounded by the forested hills of a national park, and the Alps and coast are nearby for mountain and watersport activities.

Shopping: The central open-air shopping mall has a range of shops and supermarkets, as well as an internet café, a children's play area, a church, a bakery and a post office. For souvenir shopping, the village of Grasse is only 12 miles away, with a famous range of artisanal, local crafts to choose from.

Weather in Sophia-Antipolis

Sophia-Antipolis' position slightly inland of the Cote d'Azur means the summer temperatures are usually a degree or two cooler than the coast during the long, hot summers. High temperatures typically top out around 28°C, though temperate winters, especially this close to the Alps, means this region serves equally well as a winter destination. Rainfall is sparse and falls mainly in the autumn.

Travel to Sophia-Antipolis

Sophia-Antipolis is only 12 miles from the largest airport serving the Cote d'Azur at Nice. It's also the second busiest airport in France, so just about every major international airline is represented, and direct flights from the UK are common. The town is also well served by buses, and the nearby Antibes train station connects to Nice and the rest of the Riviera. The south of France is also quite driveable from the UK, and trains can get visitors here in around nine hours from London.

It was very clean and tidy. We were a party of 6 adults, one 3 year old and a 1 year old. The swimming pool was securely fenced and even had an alarm. The villa is situated part way up a steep hill, only 5 minutes walk down to the charming village of Valbonne but more like 10 minutes back! The facilities are excellent. The only slight downside was that the a/c upstairs was a bit difficult to adjust. Charming owners who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The deposit seemed a bit high but it is the owners' home and was returned promptly after our stay. We would definitely recommend the villa to friends.

The most relaxing and memorable holiday to date! This was the first time that we had booked a villa with HomeAway and the whole process was very easy, helped by Francois quick and friendly responses. We travelled as a party of 6, 3 adults and 3 children (11,11 &13). We were very warmly greeted by Francois and Stephanie. They could not have been more friendly and welcoming and given that we did not arrive at the villa until 7pm, Francois kindly drove us to the local supermarket and then collected us an hour later so that we could stock up for a couple of days! The photos don't do the villa justice! It was very clean and modern and the views were just incredible! There were several areas dotted around the villa where we were able to eat throughout the day. The villa is shared with the owners but everything (pool,BBQ etc) was exclusive to us and they were very discreet to the point that we did not even know they were there. Our flight was from Heathrow to Nice arriving at 5pm. We decided to take the train from the airport, but my advice would be to catch the no. 250 express bus directly from the airport to Antibes pole d'enchanges. This bus took less than half an hour and cost 11 euros per person. The no. 200 bus is also available for only 1.50 euros but can take over an hour. Once at Antibes we used UBER to hire a large vehicle and this cost 18-22 euro from the bus/train station (they are next to each other) to the villa. We loved walking around Antibes Old Town and ate out here on many occasions. Eze village is also a must! We decided not to hire a car and make use of the local buses, trains and UBER and a lot of walking but this suited us fine. There is a huge Carrefour supermarket approx 15 minutes walk from the villa. For lighter shops we walked there and back. For larger shops we would use UBER for the return journey, costing only 6 euros. The amount of fresh produce was excellent. Bus routes: Nearest bus stop from villa 10 minute walk - line 7 - limited times costs 1 euro to Antibes Next stop on is via Carrefour car park and a total of 20 minute walk from villa - lines 1,6 &9 these run very regularly and again cost 1 euro 200 bus from Antibes pole d'enchanges will take you to Cannes (45 minutes) or Nice (1hr) for only 1.50 TIP - take mosquito repellent We would definitely recommend this villa to friends & family. THANK YOU FRANCOIS & FAMILY

                                                                                                  Have just returned from a fantastic two week stay at this lovely villa. It has everything you need (and more) to make your holiday comfortable and relaxing. The villa is very private but not isolated. It is in a very central location for exploring the area and it is easy to get into Valbonne, although maybe a bit too far to walk in the middle of summer on a hot day. Valbonne is a lovely little town that has lots of restaurants that open out onto the pavements and in the square in the evenings. The Friday market is really nice for a walk round but does get busy so go early. We went to Monaco for a day and also drove round the 'Grand Canyon' which was a full day out but worth the trip. Cannes is about 20 minutes away as is Grasse where we had a lovely morning at Fragonard perfume factory and then walked round the town and had a drink. There is lots to see and do within an easy drive, but away from the hustle and bustle at the coast. The owners clearly take pride in their villa and make sure it is perfect for your arrival. They met us at the villa and showed us round and explained how to use everything. They provided lots of information about supermarkets and restaurants, and were on hand if you needed them for any other help during your stay. We had our two sons with us aged 14 and 12 and the hot tub and the Pétanque proved very popular with them. We all had space to relax and do our own thing when we wanted, and enjoyed lots of evenings together outside playing pétanque and eating around the outside table.
